I'm telling on myself, because I often tell people in "casual conversation" that the government needs to stay completely out of healthcare. Not only is there no need for "health care reform" or "health insurance reform," all of the regulations that doctors, nurses, insurance companies, and employers currently need to follow should be completely repealed.
A Republic, if you can keep it!
In response to (emphasis added):
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a real opportunity for those of us who do NOT want the government to take over our health system to tell the White House directly what you think. They asked for it! Don't let this opportunity pass by. Even something very short will do.
To add to the Downright Horrifying File, here's some language from the Healthcare Bill in the House (quoted from one of my local homeschool lists--my emphasis added):
This provision provides federal funds for states to institute and promote "program-determined child and parenting outcomes."
It establishes home inspections by government employees to observe parent and child behavior, and monitor the attainment of outcomes - outcomes established by government. Those conducting the inspections are required to collect information about families, and provide this information to other government agencies.
This is a very dangerous provision.
Program-determined (by whom?). Child and parenting OUTCOMES. Outcomes = Results. If you do not accomplish the results determined by the program, then what could happen?
I agree with the person who first posted this on our local homeschool list. This is a VERY dangerous provision.
